Involvement in the animation of the scientific community

Scientific collaboration with international universities

IRISA is involved in international networks such as COST Cryptacus, Marie Skłodowska-Curie FogGuru (Guillaume Pierre, professor at the University of Rennes 1 and head of the Myriads team), EIT Digital (Pierre-Alain Fouque, professor at the University of Rennes 1 and co-head of the EMSEC team), learned societies such as Informatics Europe (Jean-Marc Jézéquel, professor at the University of Rennes 1, member of Diverse team), and technical committees around the world.
Our members are also actively involved in editorial activities acting as editor-in-chief or associate editor for a number of eminent journals (e.g., speech communication, SoSyM, IEEE Computer).

At the national level

IRISA is involved in many research groups:  GDR Sécurité Informatique led by Gildas Avoine (professor at INSA and co-leader of the EMSEC team), GDR Madics with Frédéric Bimbot (CNRS researcher and leader of the Panama team) on the board of directors, GDR Génie de la programmation et du logiciel with Jean-Marc Jézéquel (professor at the University of Rennes 1, member of Diverse team), GDR Robotics with François Chaumette (Inria research director, member of Rainbow team) on the scientific committee, GDR Automatic language processing with Guillaume Gravier (CNRS researcher, director of IRISA) on the scientific committee and Pascale Sebillot in the board (INSA professor, member of LinkMedia team).

Collaboration with the ecosystem

Labex Cominlabs: Laboratory of excellence of the Future Investment Plan which federates the best teams in Brittany and Nantes in the broad field of telecommunications (nearly 1100 researchers including more than 500 permanent staff between Brittany and Nantes), related to digital on issues of networks, security, communication, imaging or big data. About half of IRISA's teams are involved in projects funded by CominLabs, i.e. more than 20 projects funded over the period.

CHU Rennes: IRISA has close links with CHU Rennes, in particular through a joint team with INSERM and the joint NEURINFO platform.

C-Cube: is an inter-institutional tool to strengthen cybersecurity training, research and innovation. Led by academic institutions in Rennes  (Université de Rennes 1, Université de Rennes 2, CentraleSupelec, ENSAI, ENS Rennes, INSA Rennes, IEP et IMT Atlantique), major research organizations (Inria and CNRS) and supported by the Brittany Region, this project aims to intensify activities in the field of cyber security in the 3 areas of research, training and innovation. It will bring together activities related to these three areas in one place, in Rennes, and will strengthen the synergies between the partners.
